Praise for Robert Morgan:

Gripping storytelling, indelible sense of time and place... Morgan turns the stories of prosaic lives into page-turners.

— The Raleigh News and Observer
. . .

In Morgan's hands... details become the stuff of stern, gripping drama.

— The New York Times
. . .

Any new collection of poems by Robert Morgan is a gift... In the past thirty years I have learned a great deal from this man, who is exemplary as a poet, as a prose writer, and as a human being.

— Ted Kooser, former U.S. Poet Laureate
